It's not exotic. I just really like the feel of belting Venom with the upper right flipper on SM. For some reason, I can only consistently hit it if I slap the flipper button as hard as I can...
... And it feel goooood.
Volcano shot on Congo.
Lately, alternating the criss-cross ramps on FT and then after the final one feeds back to the right flipper, you nail the monster fish >> oh and you also have the video mode loaded and ready to go.
I supposed it is even more gratifying if you are good enough to have feed frenzy stacked at the same time and that is the 4th and final shot needed. If I ever accomplish that I will sell the game immediately.
Upper ramp on my WW, it's harder to get around then on any other I've played (think the ramps warped a bit) so it's rewarding when you hit it and get the spinners and such. I also like the sweep shot on the drop downs, the chimey noise it makes is cool.
Another simple but enjoyable shot is making a basket on space jam (or nba) , pin lacks depth but it's still a fun shot when you have fire going and can hit a bunch in a row
on my dr dude the rock and roll heart. when the ball jumps up about a inch you know things are gonna rock!
I have to second the vote for the air raid combo on ww. Also smashing the atom on strange science is a cool shot, especially when you have more than one ball loaded in the smasher. The newtons cradle effect is pretty cool and kind of a shock the first time you do it
The upper left flipper to the "Bust-A-Move" ramp on Radical is a hard enough shot to line up and hit that it's really cool when it all comes together and you score the million for nailing it. For that matter, the mega-millions jackpot during multiball is also really cool to hit.
Left flipper to blackout ramp on Judge Dread is an awesome shot, as is the left flipper to sniper tower.
Shots to the Yagov kicker on F-14 are cool, but rather easy to control once you're used to them.
Hitting the jump ramp on No Fear multiple times in a row.
The Diner cup shot, for sure.
Castle Destroy on Medieval Madness. Especially when it is the last shot to complete Battle for the Kingdom. "No...no....nooo!!!!" Always heart pounding when you're in the final stages of MM wizard mode. Trying to hit the gate between the trolls. Throwing out a troll bomb and trying to clear the way. Draining down to one ball and watching that ten second timer go down.
Nothing to me is more satisfying than completing Battle for the Kingdom.
The captive ball shot on the upper PF of Banzai Run to win the race and become "King of the Hill" is about as awesome as pinball theater gets. Not only is it an incredibly satisfying shot... but the show that you are rewarded with for making this difficult shot is absolutely exhilarating. And then... you get Victory Laps on the ramp! WIN!
An incredibly easy yet satisfying shot is the Safe on Sopranos when it is open. The call out makes it!
Ripley's Super Jackpot shot is very satisfying to me.
Almost any of the "collect bonus" shots on early ss machines (Skateball, Viking, Baracorra, etc)
Nailing the top spinner on Star Gazer when it's lit for 4,000 a spin.
Super Jackpot captive ball shot on Indy.
Super long back if playfield shot with the most amazing whip cracking screaming SUPERRRRRRJACKPOTTTTT!!
I have a few favorites so far.
-Camera shot in TZ, just feels cool moving the little flipper out of the way and sneaking it back in there.
-Backhanding Aragorn ramp and AC/DC cannon ramp, no idea why I like these shots I guess because I am a big newb and I feel skillful even though any 8 year old could probably do it while texting on his iphone at the same time.
-Shout out to Banzai Run "King of the Hill" have not played it or seen one in the arcade for 20+ years or so but I remember sweating trying to complete that game. Think I did it once ever and probably shoved fifty bucks into that machine which at the time was a ton.
The left spinner shot on Evel Knievel when it's lit. That is just great as the 1000 point chime rings and rings.
For my money, it is unquestionably a full, four target sweep from the right flipper that redirects into a solid lit spinner on Quicksilver. It just doesn't get more satisfying than that.
